Week 25 How I Became Skinny Grandma

How I went from Fluffy Grandma to Skinny Grandma.

First I decided I wanted to be healthy and make it a priority in my life. I have three Grandchildren and they want me around for a long time.

In the Master Key Class we talk about having a goal and a specific plan for getting to that goal. (dates and numbers included) So several months went by and my original goal
looked out of reach. (10 lbs by June 2018 it was now Dec 2017)

One day I just got mad, mad at myself unable to get that fat to go, that’s when the Mastermind concept of having others help me was put into action. It was time to draw on others
knowledge and experience in the field of weight management.

With my management team we worked out a plan of action and would meet once a week for 8 weeks. The plan did have 30 min a day of walking but no other exercise requirement. I was
to track everything that I ate and drank. Each meal had a specific time of the day and no in between eating. (a key element of the plan) The first week was the hardest, as the old
habits would creep up. The goal was 2 lbs a week for 8 weeks. I was skeptical because in the past 1 lb a week was a good week!

Once I was over that first week and had removed 4 lbs of fat, I was on my way. Each week we looked over the food log from the week before to see what may need to change. Changed up some times to eat and a few of the food choices and kept going. After the 8 weeks a total of 20 lbs was gone, I was feeling fantastic.

Bye Bye joint pain, I was sleeping well at night, no more acid reflux, and I had energy to spare.

Now you remember I said I was going for healthy, right?

So another 8 weeks was mapped out for me. A total of 40 lbs fat gone. WOW, look at me now.

I have a new lifestyle, with plenty of go and thrilled to be here. Thru this journey all the training from the Master Key class was put into practice.
Love, peace and joy

Week 25 The Advantages Of Meditation

2014-12-18_1136

From the first day in the Master Key adventure I began to meditate.

For a week I worked to secure full control of my physical being.  My favorite place to get quiet is in nature, so I chose the back porch. That proved to be somewhat of a challenge on the very cold days of winter but the sunshine made it bearable and snuggled up under a warm blanket made it just right.  There on the porch, I would sit for 30 minutes.

The second week I was to inhibit all thought.  This gave me control over all thoughts of care, worry and fear, and enables me to entertain only the kind of thoughts I desire.  For me this started out slowly as there were many thoughts and I worked at clearing the mind every few minutes.  As the week progressed, I did gain control enough to see improvement.  Each week gave me more confidence that meditation would work as I persisted.

I am now in week 25 of this process and I can say with a certainty that meditation is a wonderful place of peace and happiness.  I have experienced reduced stress, a greater self awareness, and I have an increase of compassion for those around me.

My family experiences the “new me”.  My friends look at me and seem to be thinking, “what’s changed”?

There have been other changes that I have noticed;  increased focus and mindfulness of all that is around me.  It’s like seeing everything in 3D for the first time.

Week 24 Think Out Of The Box App

Introducing a new App thru the Master Key.  It is a new way to think out of the Box.

What interested me about this line of thinking was the connection to my past, watching my Mother draw and use special tactics.  My Mother was an artist and had worked in oils and pastels. She did scenery and portraits.  You could see her progress as she became better at the portraits. Completing all eight of her Grandchildren in pastels.  One of her “tricks” was to turn the picture upside down as she worked from photos. “Out of the Box” thinking like our new app.  This way of working gave her a special advantage in portraying the character of her subject.  You could see this clearly in the pictures of my twin nephews.  So close in looks that I could hardly tell them apart.  My Mother knew by the slight difference in the shape of their faces which, she saw clearly as an artist.

So here we are week 24 being introduced to a new App.  A new way of doing, which created a new way of thinking.  The question was asked of us…What animal would you be if you were an animal?  Write it out with your dominate hand.  Mine was a dog, but the interesting part was when asked the question again this time write using my non dominate hand.   A new answer emerged….barely able to write it out.  I was a Zebra.

Now it is your turn.  Try that exercise t2015-03-25_1607o see what animal is on your dominate side and what animal is on your non dominate side.  Then try brushing your teeth with your non dominate side. That was fun!!! Then pose some questions that you would like to answer.  Using your non dominate hand write out several answers to your own questions.  This is a way to get some really amazing answers and look at things entirely different.

The Master Key class has been amazing for me, with each week filled with new adventure.  As Haanel said in the introduction…”The Master Key teaches right principles, and suggests methods for making a practical application of the principles:  in that it differs from every other course of study.”

If you would like more information when the next class will be presented, please sign up on my email list.  It would be my pleasure to introduce you, free of charge, to your own personal journey.  Sign up for the 7 Day Mental Diet to get started now.

In Harmony,

Week 20 Inspired

Quoting Haanel;

To become inspired means to get out of the

beaten path,

out of the rut,

because extraordinary results require extraordinary means.  

When we come into a recognition of the Unity of all things and

that the source of all power is within,

we tap the source of inspiration.

Inspiration is the art of self-realization;

the art of adjusting the individual mind to that of the Universal Mind; the art of attaching the

proper mechanism to the source of all power.

Inspiration comes from the Universal Mind, the source of all power.  But to become inspired is to look within and bring forth thoughts that create an ideal.  One ideal is, I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.  Bringing these words into conciousness is to proclaim them for ourselves.  Inspired words with extraordinary results when used I regularly.

Through this class with the Master Key I am learning to proclaim my uniqueness and master the skills needed to become a confident observer of my own behavior.  As I begin to emerge I see myself as a new person,

not judging, not criticizing myself or others,

I become whole and in harmony with the Universal Mind.
